  • “Blockwise Approach using Linkage Disequilibrium information” (BALD) :

The BALD R package provides functions for the Genome-Wide Association Studies including simulation of SNPs data, constrained hierarchical clustering using Linkage Disequilibrium (LD) measures, the Gap statistic to find the optimal number of clusters, and statistical regression models for SNP selection (Univariate, Lasso, Group Lasso, Elastic-Net).
